Two men stranded atop a waterfall on Mount Dickerman and a woman with an injured ankle on the Perry Creek trail in the 54800 block of the Mountain Loop Highway were rescued early Monday, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office officials said.

Everett Mountain Rescue crews climbed up to the two men, reportedly in their 20s, and rappelled with them from the waterfall area after they became stuck at about 3:15 p.m. Sunday. The men walked out, accompanied by rescuers, and reached the trailhead about 3 a.m. Monday.

The woman reportedly suffered a broken ankle from a fall in the same area Sunday afternoon. She was packed into a litter and carried out by volunteers to the trailhead, also around 3 a.m., officials said in a statement.

The two rescue incidents were not related.

A male rescuer who responded to the incidents suffered a serious medical problem about 7:30 p.m. Sunday. He was taken by helicopter to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, and remains in critical condition, said Shari Ireton, communications director for the sheriff’s office.

Additional crews responded from Skagit County, Pierce County Mountain Rescue and King County Mountain Rescue.

No names or other details about the victims were available, officials said.
